Assisted Living Proposal on Mill Road is Stalled
Developers don’t have enough space for development without changing the zoning. And that’s not likely going to happen.
A proposal to build a large assisted living complex on Mill Road has been stalled after developers learned they could be limited by the available space.
According to officials, the McCabe family is looking to build an assisted living facility for seniors on a large parcel of land on Mill Road.
Brecksville mayor Jerry Hruby said that the parcel was looked at as “a good place” for an assisted living facility. However, developers learned that a zoning change could be required to complete the large project.
“They want to develop every inch of it,” Hruby said. “That intrudes too greatly on Mill Road.”
Turns out, neighbors aren’t thrilled with that prospect.
“Our neighborhood is in trouble,” a nearby resident told Brecksville Patch. “They already tried once last year. We need to put a stop to this. It’s not right.”
Hruby said no zoning changes are likely, and would need to go before voters to do so.
“They’ll come back at some point to talk to us for a consultation,” he said. “We will not support overdevelopment of that land.”
The McCabes couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
